So I have minimal black powder experience and I only own a humble Jukar 45 cap lock. I think the competition sounds fun and I spend most days either neck deep in work or dying of boredom.I would like to challenge each and every single member of chapter 22 to see who is the better black powder shot. You can get your ass whoopin at http://nmlra.org/wp-content/uploads/201 ... -Maine.pdf Losers can buy me a drink at the local watering hole, or just comment on the severe beating I will be handing out in the competition and tell all chapter 22 minute men that I am the king of minute men. Good luck chups!!!
I have only fired my black powders like 3 times, but by july I'm sure I'll figure it out. If I lose I'll buy the drinks and tell ever one how great you are.
My questions are have any of you competed in anything like this? What was your experience? What did you use as your firearm? How much did you train?
If I put 1000 rounds down range in 4 weeks will I likely be near amateur competition level or will I more likely be a jive turkey that is quickly and easily stomped by veterans?
Do I have enough time to tweek my powder wad and shot? Or should I just stick with what I already have and train hard with it?
Should I be using some super cap lock pistol grip method because I don't think I know one.
I generally use a Chapman stance, should I adjust to Isosceles or Weaver?
Any help would be appreciated!
